A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Missed my diagnosis entirely. Said there was nothing wrong with me. When I pressed him about my pain, he got hot under the collar, raised his voice at me and told me to go home and take an Advil. Years later I am finally getting the right diagnosis, but the delay in treatment means irreversible damage to my joints.
If you're a patient over 75 years old this is the doctor for you. I've had 2 visits with Dr Weinblatt and my face time combined for both visits was 5-6 minutes max. I'm still crippled. He told me to come back in 6 months for a follow up. That won't be happening. He doesn't even seem to interact with the office staff. I did hear him with an ederly patient and he seemed more concerned.I have put my treatment 6 months behind now.
